I am in the market for a new laptop bag. I currently have a Targus backpack that was provided with my laptop for work, but we have a security checkpoint (airport style) and it takes too long to open up all the compartments.

I am looking for something low profile, with 1 main compartment and maybe one other compartment. I prefer messenger / shoulder style over backpack

The laptop is a 13.3" macbook, and I prefer to buy from Amazon.com since I get a discount.

Any suggestions?

Do you want something to carry your camera gear too? I know you said you prefer messenger type vs. backpack but I currently use this Kata Sensitivity V for my notebook and camera gear. It says up to a 12" notebook but the two 14" I used to own (Latitude D620 & Vostro 1400) fit snugly and I know the Macbook will fit fine. As for fitting camera gear as well, I can fit the notebook along with all my camera gear listed in my signature and a few CF cards, lens pen, biz cards, card reader, usb drive, WD Passport drive and notebook charger. The backpack carries some heavy gear but is so comfortable and sleek. I love it, just wish it had another layer to carry paperwork stuff.

That's a nice look bag. I won't be carrying any camera gear to work though. Just my laptop, charger and maybe a Cisco command guide.

The two compartments can be combined. You can unzip the divider between them and it would just make 1 large compartment vs. 2 smaller compartment.
